In 2015, the United Nations (UN) adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to eradicate poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved in the next 15 years. To achieve the goals, everyone must do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society.

The Orabank Group’s CSR Strategic Roadmap contributes fully to achieving the SDGs. It covers both issues related to poverty reduction and inequality, while ensuring socio-economic development in Africa, through multiparty agreements for green growth.
